Interesting you picked up this point from that paper. In the 
context of the area I have been working in we have 
traditionally had two implementations of XPath, one push 
and one pull. These have now been unified into a single 
implementation that can operate either as pull or push. For 
implementation reasons the push does not look much like a 
simple SAX filter approach but its a push never the less. 
The rational for merging the two was partly functional 
needs and partly the difficulty of supporting XPath2 over 
two separate implementations.
